I'm curious as to if Double Fine were to purchase their own games from this auction.

Well it's just that one ps1 game

I would actually suggest buying it. It's a good collectors piece and the only Yu-Gi-Oh game that doesn't have banned cards.

So there are 2 problems that can make this a horrible situation and turn gamers away immediately.

1.) They pressure you into buying micro-transactions. Constant pop-ups saying it will be easier if you purchased resources with real money.

2.) If they used pay-to-win micro-transactions in the multiplayer.

So far, the developer hasn't mentioned any of that. So my suggestion is to wait on Giant Bomb's review and see what they have to say. Because I'm pretty sure they will bring it up.

Analysts are the last things you should ever trust in the video game business. Most of the time, their predictions are wrong. Besides, there's no way Sony would by Microsoft when Sony isn't doing that well in their console division.

So let's say that not all 10,000 Pokemon are in X/Y - then how do you get the old ones into the game? If I remember correctly in the DS games you would insert a GBA cartridge to import older Pokemon into Pal Park. As far as I know, there isn't a way to have 2 games inserted into the 3DS at once, so how would you get access to the Pokemon not present in X/Y?

Most likely you would miss out on the Sapphire/Ruby/Emerald Pokemon since those were the only GBA games. Red/Blue and Gold/Silver pokemon are in SoulSilver/HeartGold. Then you have the other DS games, Pearl/Diamond/Platinum, Black/White, and Black 2/White 2.

That's weird. Once Nintendo makes one of their games a Greatest Hit (Nintendo's version), they usually drop the price down to $20. I've seen Super Mario Galaxy, Twilight Princess, Super Paper Mario, and Pikmin 2 all for $20 at Wal-mart.

@pw2566ch: You can run games on it too, they just have to be your copy of the game. Fair use, yadda yadda. It's not illegal to say, use your Wii to rip your copy of Skyward Sword to a flash stick and then emulate the game on your PC.

You don't even need to rip the game. Dolphin can run the game from the PC DVD drive.

Not really. Unless you have a very specific DVD drive in your PC they won't be able to read WII games straight off the disc in Dolphin. MOst modern DVD drives can't read Wii discs properly.

I can attest to this. I tried playing my copies of Last Story and Xenoblade on Dolphin for the better AA and resolutions than the Wii has and it was a no go cause my DVD drive was like "Pfft Wii discs? What are those?" :(

However, PCSX2 is running my copy of Dark Cloud 2 just great, looks all crisp and purty; better than it does natively on the PS2. And the best part about it is save states. Delicious save states. Mmmmm.... Oh and turbo mode. I wish all RPGs had a turbo mode feature to alleviate some of the grinding. That'd be so nice.

I guess I got lucky with my DVD drive. Weird. Or maybe I'm thinking of PCSX2 that can run straight from the DVD. It's been awhile since I've played them. So I can't remember.

Is a discussion like this allowed on the site? It's somewhere near the line.

I just skimmed, but he doesn't mention ROMs anywhere does he? As far as I can tell emulators are perfectly legal and fine, illegal ROM downloads not so much.

Running an emulator is not considered illegal. Having ROMs or downloaded ISOs is illegal. So you can run any emulator you want, you just can't have any licensed games running on them.

@benspyda: Dolphin is by far the best emulator I have ever used. If you're going to use that emulator then I highly suggest investing in a bluetooth dongle. You can use a mouse and keyboard for Wii games, but it's still much better to use a Wii remote. You should also purchase a wireless sensor bar.

And how does the games on PCSX2 run for you? Usually when I'm running a graphic heavy game like Dynasty Warriors or something that need to render a lot of objects, it just slows down. Maybe because I'm still running a dual-core processor.

@believer258 yeah, that's exactly what I said in my first post! I've never played either, and I'd rather play them both on the PSP, which is why I hope once P4G is out of the way, they mention that the EP localization of the PSP version is still coming.
Modify your PSP and put the PS1 version on the PSP?

That's pretty much what I've done. You have to search for a program called PSX2PSP once you mod your PSP though.

I didn't have to do that. I just put PS1 games on there and they work.

If you're talking about PS1 games from the PSN store, then that works without a modified PSP. I'm talking about putting PS1 games on a modified PSP that aren't even on the PSN store. Like Digimon World.

So am I. I didn't put anything on my PSP other than the PS1 game. What firmware are you using?

FW 6.60. It's the latest one. Weird, I didn't know PS1 games can still work without a modded PSP.
